We’re excited to be in such great company. A full list of nominees can be found via the IDA’s twitter feed, or here on IndieWire.  Winners will be announced at the IDA Awards on December 5.

Meanwhile, the filmmaker behind Evolution of a Criminal, which airs on Independent Lens on January 12, received some very good news today as well:

Darius Clark Monroe, director of EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL, will receive IDA’s Emerging Documentary Filmmaker Award, which recognizes the achievements of a filmmaker who has made a significant impact at the beginning of his or her career in documentary film. The winner of the Emerging Documentary Award receives $5,000 in cash and a donation of post-production services valued at $50,000, made possible by sponsors Red Fire Films and Modern VideoFilm.
